I will create a society where women shine. Under my administration, women's active participation constitutes the core of the growth strategy, rather than social policy. In this respect, we have decided that at least 30 percent of all national government officials employed next year will be women. I have also been urging listed companies to add at least one woman as a board member. By encouraging the advancement of women in society, we will raise our growth rate and promote "womenomics."
